“Swept Out To Sea” signaling FIXED LENS first appearance on vinyl. While channeling the atmosphere of their highly acclaimed debut s/t EP, “Swept Out to Sea” centers on losing oneself in anger and rage, and the BPMs and intensity of these tracks increase accordingly. The b-side “Hideous Ecstasy” is an Orwellian cautionary tale of mob mentality, groupthink, and the ways society can quickly fall into patterns of violence. To coincide with the release of the EP, the band is debuting their first music video for the title track “Swept Out to Sea.”
Percussive, distorted, and chorus-laden like its predecessor, these songs mark a more aggressive demeanor and form. These songs are more political and energetic than other contemporary post-punk fare, yet they fit seamlessly with seminal classics from which they draw much inspiration, at times reminiscent of KILLING JOKE or FRUSTRATION.
As veterans of post-punk and hardcore bands (Totenwald, Nocturnal Scum), guitarist and singer Robert Hanna and synthesist Matthias Gaese paint an impression of a bleak and not-so-distant future from the current world in which we live. The tracks on “Swept Out to Sea” provide a portal into this potential world, one which must be questioned, and ultimately reformed before it is too late.
